We are committed to making the Academic Assembly the best experience CORD can offer. We want to encourage education and be supportive of working parents while being good financial stewards for the Organization. In 2019 CORD and EMRA committed more than $15k to childcare at the conference that was utilized by less than 10% of our attendees. We feel the childcare credit/refund offering for the 2020 Academic Assembly is a better alternative that may support more members while also being the best financially responsible plan.
CORD, in partnership with EMRA, is pleased to offer a $400 credit/refund to attendees that purchase in-room childcare services during education hours of the 2020 CORD Academic Assembly from one of the following agencies:
- Hotel Concierge – Average Rate? Variable depending on the Provider recommended.
